In a pseudo-random sort of way I started listening to the Henhouse Prowlers, a band previously totally unknown to me, the other day (just kind of liked the name). They're a pretty energetic Chicago bluegrass band so could well be to your liking. I certainly didn't feel the time had been wasted.

Rob -

Outstanding!!!! These guys are great. Not so sure the office completely shares my enthusiasm but I don't care.

Couple more to chew on when you get a chance:

Mando Mafia: http://www.archive.org/details/mandomafia2009-02-28.akg-c480b.tetzeli.flac16

And on the name alone, Special Ed and the Shortbus

This mandomafia has some nice covers Brain Damage and All that you Dream to name a few - I encourage folks to give these guys a listen.

Any band that can work Helter Skelter AND Foggy Mountain Breakdown into their setlist deserves a listen.

That was pretty much my thinking! Locomotive Breath works pretty well bluegrass-style too.

I completely missed that the first time I perused the setlist. Tull was my first concert experience as a teenager. Is that really Turn Me Loose from Loverboy? Now it's a must listen.

The Gourds cover Snoop Dogg's Gin & Juice. It also translats well to bluegrass.

Go here for the Gin & Juice

This was the show I saw. A really fun night, high energy by the band and a great recording too.

Thanks for those links. Just had a big drink of Gin and Juice and found it very refreshing! I think I'm going to have to download some Gourds tonight.

Cool - I will give this a listen this afternoon.

Listening to Acoustic Syndicate now (a Mando recommendation)

Have you tried Holy Ghost Tent Revival (also on Mando's list)?
They're a whole hell of a lot of fun.

The Mando Man was right you know - you can't resist a band with banjos and a trombone.
